about

Doris Kearns Goodwin's Pulitzer Prize-winning monumental bestseller, No Ordinary Time, is now available from Encore for only $14.99!

From the bestselling author of Team of Rivals and The Fitzgeralds and the Kennedys, a compelling chronicle of a nation and its leaders during the period when modern America was created. At the center of the country’s transformation was the complex partnership of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt.
